Split Series keeps Sabathia window open

CC Sabathia has until three days after the World Series to decide whether to opt out of his contract, and Brian Cashman has said he wants to begin contract talks with his ace before the Series ends.

Last night’s Rangers win guaranteed that window will stay open at least two extra days.

With the series tied at two games apiece, there will be an off day on Tuesday and a Game 6 on Wednesday. That gives Sabathia through at least the weekend to make his opt-out decision, and that should give the Yankees some time to talk to their ace about a new deal.

Can a deal be worked out before the all-but-inevitable opt out?

“I wouldn’t be able to predict,” Cashman told Bryan Hoch late last week. “But we’ll see.”
